    Very Good

    26 Jan 2019
    Pros: Great location. Very clean, always seen someone cleaning. Rooftop area is fantastic. Kitchen was great. TV in lounge area. Staff very friendly. Cons: Stayed in a 'ensuite room' which apparently means a sink and a fridge? Floors were carpet which I found to make the room very warm. Fans in the room were old and not very powerful so a nights sleep was difficult. Windows didnt have netting so leaving them open meant a lot of mozzy bites. Washer/dryer not usable past 9pm.

    Very basic hostel which lacked a friendly atmosphere. There was nowhere secure to leave bags and there was a $30 key deposit not advertised beforehand. However the breakfast included was much appreciated.

    Staff were lovely and free breakfast was a bonus (even if it lacked vegan options) but the hostel itself is quite run down and dated, door was never locked and there weren’t any lockers so just had to put our trust in the other hostel goers. For what they charge I’m sure they could put some money together and make it a bit nicer... staff were lovely nonetheless. However we’re glad our stay was only 1 night.

    My room and the bathrooms were an absolut disaster. It looked like nobody cleaned them for months. There’s mound in the bathrooms and dirt everywhere. My roommates bed was infested with bedbugs but nobody cared or has done anything about it. At least the staff was friendly and the kitchen was also good.

    The bathrooms in this hostel were absolutely disgusting. The showers had hair all over the walls/floor. I almost puked trying to use the toilet it was so gross. There were bugs EVERYWHERE. The employees don’t clean the upper bathrooms, only the first floor. I felt filthy staying at that place. I paid online for 2 nights, went to re-book for another couple of nights and the staff charged me $8.00 more than what I paid the first time. I’ll never be staying there again. Horrible for the price.
